However, Darrell Wallace Jr. soon took over the lead and held it until the midway break on lap 50.
Jesse Little was in second place at the midway point followed by Reddick, Pressley, Moffitt, Elliott, Pena, Kennedy, LaJoie and Larson.
During the break, the previous leader, Wallace Jr, was penalized for unapproved adjustments and sent to the rear of the field.
On lap 79, the field was red flagged after an accident. Dylan Presnell’s car flipped and landed on its roof in the infield. Jorge Artega and Chase Elliott were also involved in the incident. All the drivers involved escaped injury.
Racing resumed with Jesse Little in the lead followed by Moffitt, Pressley, Reddick, Pena, LaJoie and Larson.
Tyler Reddick went on to win the race with Corey LaJoie finishing second. Darrell Wallace Jr. came from the back after his penalty to finish in the third position, Coleman Pressley fourth and Jesse Little rounded out the top five.
Kyle Larson finished sixth and is the unofficial Series Champion of the 2012 K&N Pro Series East division. Larson had two wins and 12 top-10 finishes in 14 races driving a Toyota Camry for Rev Racing.
“I’ve been lucky a lot this year, just stayed consistent and got the championship,” said Larson. “It feels great. I have to thank the whole Rev Racing team, Toyota and everyone that helps out on this team.”
